sidhu: Channi, Sidhu on the first list of 86 names of Pb Cong “Play Safe” | Chandigarh News

Chandigarh: Congress released its first list of 86 candidates for the Punjab Assembly elections on Saturday, lining up Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi and State Congress Speaker Navjot Singh Sidhu from their existing seats, while betting on Punjabi singer Sidhu Moosewala from Mansa, actor Sonu Sood’s sister, Malvika Sood, from Moga, and party leader Sunil Jakhar’s nephew, Sandeep Jakhar, from Abohar.
Playing it safe and to rule out the possibility of desertions in a five-way contest, Congress decided to repeat the majority of its incumbent MPs, including all 17 Cabinet ministers, with the exception of Brahm Mohindra, who quit the seat of Patiala (rural) for his son, Mohit Mohindra. Channi was renamed from Chamkaur Sahib and Sidhu constituency of Amritsar (East). Elections will be held on February 14 for all 117 electoral districts in the state.
Meanwhile, the party dropped four incumbent Congress MPs: Harjot Kamal was passed over in favor of Malvika Sood and joined the BJP. The party selected Rupinder Kaur Ruby, who joined the party after winning the last election on an AAP ticket. She was lined up from Malout in place of incumbent MP Ajaib Singh Bhatti.
